Address delivered by the Governor of
Lagos State, His Excellency, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, on the APC Lagos State
Governorship Primaries on Wednesday, 3rd October, 2018
Fellow Lagosians, the last few days have witnessed
intense political activities that have gripped the attention of the nation and
created palpable tension in the polity. I strongly believe that the time has
now come for the State to move forward in order that the gains of the last
three and half years are not lost.
Dear Lagosians, APC is a great party and the interests of our beloved State
must always supercede that of any person or group. It is in this regard that I
wholeheartedly congratulate the winner of the Lagos State APC Primaries, Mr.
Babajide Sanwo-Olu and urge all Lagosians to immediately support our party’s
gubernatorial candidate in the 2019 elections and work for the success of our
As Governor, I will do everything possible to ensure a smooth transition in the
remaining period of this administration and ultimately to the new Governor,
come May 2019.
I therefore appeal to all our party members that we remain one family and unite
behind the candidate of the party, so that we can continue to move this state
The progress of Lagos state is non-negotiable. It is a project that I have
passionately worked for in the last three and half years as your Governor and
one to which I will forever be devoted.
I wish to use this opportunity to thank our national leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed
Tinubu, and the leadership of our great party at state and national levels, all
party faithfuls and all Lagosians.
I thank all Lagosians for their faith and trust in me. I urge you not to relent
in your support for our party as we prepare for the General Elections.
Long Live Nigeria
Long Live Lagos State
Long Live APC
